Get cash for business growth - Invest4 grant scheme reopens on 1 August 2022!
Applications for Invest4 grants are opening again on 1 August, so if your clients are looking for funding to help their business grow, make sure that you spread the word so that they don't miss out! The grants are only available until 3 October 2022 or when the funding phase has been allocated. There's over £160,000 of grant money to be allocated, on a first-come, first-served basis, so encourage them to take advantage of this great opportunity.
To have the best chance of being successful with their grant application, we have our grant workshops to take them through the application process. Our Invest4 Boot Camps - Fit for Finance and Money Sense help create the supporting documents such as business plan and cashflow forecasts.
